Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The strongest scenes take place in dingy hotel rooms, on a deserted farm or in the rehab sessions. It's during these moments that "Home Run" swings for the fences, and often connects."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
"As Christian-themed movies go, this one may not be an over-the-fence hit, but decent enough acting almost compensates for a clichéd plot that's intended as a too-obvious illustration/inspiration."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Athlete learns what's important in alcoholism drama."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Boilerplate rise-fall-redemption stuff that works more when it's trying to do less."
‑ Chris Foran, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"It's preaching the gospel of a 12-step recovery program with a heavy helping of Jesus for guidance. And the corn can get pretty high ..."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"This slightly better-than-average family film is all paint-by-numbers."
‑ Louis Black, Austin Chronicle
"Baseball, little kids and religion could be a queasy formula for the movie blues but, happily, this one slides down pretty easily."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Well-cast but thinly scripted faith-based dramedy about baseball, booze and redemption"
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"Almost from the beginning the message overwhelms the medium."
‑ Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"An inspirational and entertaining movie about a baseball player's road to recovery from addiction."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com
"It delivers its message of hope and healing in a manner that is honest, entertaining and authentic, in a film that can reach audiences both religious and secular."
‑ Michael Smith, Tulsa World
